INNOVATION by DRT
In the face of the global boom in new technologies and growing environmental impact, DRT strives to reconcile technology and ecology with its bio-sourced ingredients.
At DRT, we have focused our research on environmentally-friendly solutions for new technologies.
With our expertise in bio-sourced solutions, we hope to contribute to innovations which make electronics greener.
As non-carcinogenic and environmentally-friendly alternatives, our plant-based solvents can replace the traditional toxic solvents used for cleaning cards and electronic components.
Due to their highly pure nature, our solvents are used to prevent deposits of dust and other particles that can cause short-circuits when printing components.
Compared to traditional fastening techniques, our solutions for adhesive tapes for smartphone manufacturing allow the size of mobile equipment to be reduced while offering improved durability, adhesive power, and flexibility.
Another benefit is the use of pressure-sensitive adhesives between two systems of components that allows improved recyclability and reuse of materials.
A truly growing industry, 3D printing is exploring even more new solutions.
Our product benefits within that specific area include better adhesion between layers, better performance, improved compatibility between polymers and additives. Our resins allow both the use of conventional polymer systems and of innovative systems while reducing the use of materials and the carbon footprint of these systems.
Vehicles tend to contain more and more electronic components with the increasing range of electric vehicles. We are part of this evolution and contribute to make it even greener with our products that make it possible to create renewable adhesives adapted to the on-board electronics. From a broader perspective, we help to increase the bio-based content of all the high-performance adhesives used to build a car. Adhesives systems also make cars lighter, requiring less fuel to drive and consequently reducing the global footprint of the vehicles.
Our ingredients offer green alternatives beyond the adhesives used within the cars as our expertise in bio-based ingredients also extends to tires. While our resins increase tires’ renewability, they are also designed to enhance tire performance, improve consumers’ safety and reduce rolling resistance which lowers fuel consumption.

We also take pride in having our bio-based resins used for the construction of solar and wind energy infrastructure. They offer renewable bonding properties that are key for the adhesives used for these two technologies. For instance, adhesives are an easy-to-use solution to attach solar panels, ensuring their isolation or edge protection. Our biobased resins are also used during the casting phase of windmills’ components, and in coatings which are used to extend lifetime of their blades and increase windmills efficiency by protecting them from erosion
Energy needs to be as green as possible and this is why we have developed a range of bioliquids, Dertal®, as a renewable alternative to fossil energy. Our bioliquids drastically reduce combustion emissions (CO2, SOx, NOx and heavy metals). They have numerous applications, for industrial and city boilers to support the development of the cities of tomorrow but also for ovens, heat and asphalt plants and cogeneration units. The Dertal® range is certified by the ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification), a sustainability certification system covering the entire supply chain and all kinds of biobased feedstocks and renewables.
